“Astrology is the complete repository of man’s psychological knowledge”

Carl Jung

Astrology, when studied from an esoteric, evolutionary and spiritual perspective, is an incredibly accurate and valuable tool that, when the teachings are personally applied, enables access to the subconscious and super- conscious mind. Our birth chart indicates our potential. It also provides accurate information as to the psychological lessons we have incarnated to identify and overcome.

Since 1987 Ashtara has used astrology as an accelerated learning tool to gain greater self-awareness. She realised that for things to change externally first she must change internally.

She learned to become aware of her self-destructive psychology and transform it. As her self-awareness increased she took personal responsibility for the way she creates her life.  She teaches her students to do the same.

Our old way of being no longer fulfils or enriches life. When it’s time for psychological and spiritual growth, challenging situations arise in our life. They provide the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves. This inner journey requires the development of self-awareness and the willingness to take personal responsibility for all we think, feel and create. This inner revolution occurs according to cosmic timing. It’s dependent upon the specific relationship of celestial bodies to each other, and the effect of their energetic force field on individuals, and the collective consciousness. Ageless Wisdom identifies and defines this cosmic system and provides information as to how best to manage it.

Ashtara began teaching her perspective on astrology in 1992. Since then she’s written many articles and books on the subject.

Her classes and workshops are enlightening, fun, purposeful and filled with insights. Each one is designed to assist students raise their levels of self-awareness.

To aid student’s personal and spiritual development Ashtara wrote three astrology books titled Your Recipe for Empowerment through Spiritual Astrology. These three books, Volumes One, Two and Three, guide students to work with their birth chart to gain greater self-awareness. These simply written books are accelerated learning tools. Students who cannot attend classes also regard them highly. They need to be studied and the teachings applied to daily life.  They contain valuable information; stories to demonstrate the written concepts, and exercises to help students integrate the teachings.

“I started studying your book and my chart in earnest a few days ago, and I just wanted to let you know that the effect has been immediate! I’ve barely started and yet I can feel movement already in my heart, mind and soul, beyond that which I have experienced before in my (this) life/spiritual journey and this is because of your guidance through your words and teaching.

I feel such a magnetic pull to your words and teachings that I can hardly describe, and I sincerely hope that I can continue my studies in spiritual astrology with you, as far as it will take me in this life.

Thank you, Ashtara, with much love.”

Belinda Burman

Some esoteric principles govern her understanding and are:

  • We humans are, in essence, divine
  • We are each a fragment of the Universal Mind, the Mind of God.
  • We have a lower and higher nature.
  • Our higher nature is that of spirit. When realization and acceptance of the magnificence of our higher nature occurs, life changes. We can no longer operate unconsciously, robotically replaying the same old fear-based psychological games. We begin to function as a soul.

Ashtara, Thank you for an up-close, personal and revealing journey through your classes.  I am eternally grateful”.


“What a fabulous workshop – thought it was perfectly presented in a fun way (Ashtara style) – a reminder that we often take life too seriously- absolutely loved your way of combining astrology with acting and a sense of humour – it really moved things along”

Nuria Breier

“Ashtara, thank you so much for yet another fabulous workshop. I came away with a much deeper understanding of how I can use astrology as a tool to deepen my self-awareness and to make the right choices to create health and harmony in my life. By the end of the day I felt very peaceful, joyful and energized!! Thank you!”

Jupiter beams it’s energy package to all within it’s field of influence, as do we humans. The planets radiate energy, each one in a different way, depending on their energetic make-up. Just like us. The radiation from the Sun is, obviously, the strongest. It’s solar flares create atmospheric disturbances, and sensitive humans feel them. Our scientists register and record them on specific instruments. Astrologically, Jupiter’s energy is connected to expansion and spiritual growth. This energy,...

11th October Astrology News

By | Astrology
Tomorrow, 11th October, transiting (travelling) Saturn, turns it’s motion to direct having been retrograde since 23rd May this year. (Check out last week’s newsletter where I explained the retrograde motion). Also, reflect upon any serious issues surfacing in May that need resolution. If they haven’t been resolved, now is the time to do so. Saturn’s archetypal energy can be likened to that of a stern, authority figure - like the principal of a school. Saturn is also the time keeper. When it’s time for us to learn major life lessons Saturn, through beams of energy connecting to a placement in...

Pluto Direct 6 October 2021

By | Astrology
October is quite a busy month astrologically. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all change their direction of motion from retrograde to direct. Bear in mind this is from our perspective on Earth. If we lived on the Sun the planets would not appear to change direction. How we view life depends upon our perception. I’ll write about Pluto this week because its the first one of the three to change motion. On the 6th October, Pluto, the planet connected to personal and collective transformation, turns direct. It began it’s retrograde motion on April 27th this year. Since then the issues connected...

December Solstice 2020 – Saturn/Jupiter Ingress into Aquarius

By | Astrology
Today, Jupiter and Saturn begin their journey through Aquarius; Jupiter for approximately one year, and Saturn for approximately two and a half years.

Our Future is What we Make it – An Astrological perspective on the world of 2020

By | Astrology
According to evolutionary astrologer and author, Jeffrey Wolf Green, many thousands of years ago, during times of the matriarchy, Nature was revered, as was natural law. Men and women were considered equal, each with their own roles. Domination by one gender over the other was unheard of. There are no historical facts recording wars, sexual violations, religious or political control during the matriarchy. Times changed when men realised they played an equal role in conceiving a child. A slow transition from the matriarchy to patriarchal domination began. This transition commenced during the Capricorn sub-age of the Cancer Age. Progressively, natural law...

Sun:  The Source of Life. The greatest light in our sky, representing the greatest light we can become through conscious development of openhearted love. Can represent and describe our father. Rules the zodiacal sign of Leo and, anatomically, the heart. Symbolically each individual is a small Sun whose ultimate purpose is to realize innate potential and be the shining Star that we are. Moon:  Feminine, Passive and Reflective. Reflects the light of the Sun and pulls the tides of the ocean. It also “pulls” our internal emotional tides and reflects our light. It rules the unconscious side of our personality....
